Stampin' Up's 2014 Holiday Extravaganza has started!

Hello all and welcome!  Life has a way of sneaking up on you and you find yourself asking "where did the time go".  Sorry it's been quiet around here, you know the saying about best intentions.... Anyway, I'm here today to make certain you see the Holiday Extravaganza list.  I tried posting this for the past 2 days and finally came to the conclusion that Google was not playing nice with Internet Explorer, so I had to download Firefox.

Below is the list of products on sale for Holiday Extravaganza; you can also click HERE to view the PDF version.  The sale runs from November 24, 2014 to December 2, 2014 and you can get the discounted prices if you place your order online OR as part of a Hostess Order.  Stampin' Up set aside only a certain quantity of items for the sale, so if there's something you really want, it's better to order it sooner than later.  If you'd like to place an order with me, you can click HERE and create, or sign into, your online account - once you sign in, be certain to select me as your Demonstrator in order to get my Frequent Shopper Rewards points!  Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
